Sovereignty is sometimes regarded as a concept with a fixed meaning, as something that can only be kept or lost, and which at the present time is under threat from globalisation, the erosion of the nation state and European integration. Raia Prokhovnik develops a strong argument for sovereignty as a robust concept with many conceptualisations in the past, and capable of further fruitful reconceptualisation in the future. The book explores the history of the
concept, contemporary theoretical developments, and current political
issues around sovereignty that have crucial practical and institutional implications.
